Paranormal Activity Happening in More Cities
Posted 10.06.09 by reelz
Paranormal Activity, a Blair Witch-style videocam horror pic made in 7 days for just $15,000, has done so well at midnight screenings that this weekend Paramount is expanding the movie's release beyond Los Angeles and New York; specifically to Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, El Paso, Hampton Roads metro area, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Pittsburgh, Portland, Salt Lake City, and Toronto.
Paramount is also saying they'll release the movie nationwide if 1M people demand it on the Paranormal Activity eventful.com page. So if you live in Boise, vote now!
Reviews for the movie have been very good, some going so far as calling it the scariest movie of the decade.
"...freaky and terrifying."
— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"...[delivers] old-school scares, refreshingly blood-free..."
— Chuck Wilson, Village Voice
"...a simple yet hair-raising enterprise..."
— Dennis Harvey, Variety
"...this potent frightfest will fry your nerves and creep you out big time without spending a dime on obvious special effects."
— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
Director Oren Peli is already working on his next movie, Area 51, which he told the Orlando Sentinel "will be similar to Paranormal, found-video." Here's hoping he's not a one-trick pony.
